Ready to study at BCIT? Not sure what you need as an international student to get started? Don’t worry!

We will take you through the steps required to submit your application or declaration. We will also inform you of all educational and immigration documents required by BCIT.

BCIT offers several types of programs:


Full-time programs require you to apply and meet specific entrance requirements. Seats for full-time programs are limited. Depending on the program, students are accepted on a first-come, first-served or competitive basis. If you are accepted, you are automatically registered into all of the courses you need each term.

Apply to a full-time program

Part-time Studies

Part-time Studies (course-by-course) programs require you to declare and may or may not have entrance requirements. You are responsible for registering yourself into the courses you need each term. Registration for part-time studies courses is processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Students should be aware that space in courses is limited; some courses fill very quickly.

Note: Part-time Studies (course-by-course) programs are only available to international students who currently have a valid status in Canada.

International Student Entry Program (ISEP)

ISEP is an academic English language program that prepares students for success in full-time studies at BCIT and enables you to meet BCIT English requirements.
